What in Neptune's World?

Postby liquid » May 15th, 2007, 10:22 am

In this month's Advanced Aquarist's Online Magazine, we have a mystery fish seeking identification. Can you identify it? Also, aside from what it is, what is unusual about this male fish?

Please refer to this article in this month's Advanced Aquarist: http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2007/5/neptune

Good luck!!! :D

Yellowbanded Pipefish, aka Doryrhamphus Pessuliferus. He's got eggs on him too. He'll be a nice dad soon.

Haha thanks. I've been researching seahorses and pipefish a lot so I recognized him right away.

Kuiter's book says the genus is Dunckerocampus, not Doryrhamphus. :?
